Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
Rather than speculating I would suggest you to get an ophthalmologist's consultation, there is no relation between the throat and the eye. Yellow spots could be due to nutritional deficiency.

1. You will need an anti reflux medication. There may also be a transient throat infection causing the swelling. Ciprofloxacin is not the ideal antibiotic for a throat infection.

2. Yellow spots in your eye may be a sign of :

a) Liver disorders. Repeat your liver function tests.

b) Irritation or dryness of the eye. What is your occupation?

c) Lipid disorders

d) Rarely due to long term ciprofloxacin use.

3. E-mail a photo of your eyes to with 'Attn: Dr. Sumit Bhatti' as the subject line. Alternatively get an ophthalmologist's opinion.

4. If the entire sclera is yellow, rule out jaundice.
